Glyphosate shown to disrupt microbiome ‘at safe levels’, study claims

A chemical found in the world’s most widely used weedkiller can have disrupting effects on sexual development, genes and beneficial gut bacteria at doses considered safe, according to a wide-ranging pilot study in rats.

Glyphosate is the core ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide and levels found in the human bloodstream have spiked by more than a 1,000% in the last two decades.

The substance was recently relicensed for a shortened five-year lease by the EU. But scientists involved in the new glyphosate study say their results show that it poses “a significant public health concern”.

One of the report’s authors, Daniele Mandrioli, at the Ramazzini Institute in Bologna, Italy, said significant and potentially detrimental effects from glyphosate had been detected in the gut bacteria of rat pups born to mothers, who appeared to have been unaffected themselves.

“It shouldn’t be happening and it is quite remarkable that it is,” Mandrioli said. “Disruption of the microbiome has been associated with a number of negative health outcomes, such as obsesity, diabetes and immunological problems.”

Prof Philip J Landrigan, of New York’s Icahn School of Medicine, and also one of the research team, said: “These early warnings must be further investigated in a comprehensive long-term study.” He added that serious health effects from the chemical might manifest as long-term cancer risk: “That might affect a huge number of people, given the planet-wide use of the glyphosate-based herbicides.”

Controversy has raged around glyphosate since a World Health Organisation agency – the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) – judged it to be a “probable human carcinogen” in 2015.

However, US and European regulators subsequently deemed it acceptable for use, a move campaigners condemned because of regulators’ use of secret industry papers and experts with alleged ties to Monsanto.

The US firm, which recently merged with Bayer in a deal worth more than $ 60bn, argues that it is being unfairly targeted by activist scientists with ulterior motives.

Scott Partridge, Monsanto’s VP for global strategy told the Guardian: “The Ramazzini Institute is an activist organisation with an agenda that they have not disclosed as part of their crowdfunding efforts. They wish to support a ban on glyphosate and they have a long history of rendering opinions not supported by regulatory testing agencies.”

“This is not about genuine research,” he added. “All the research to date has demonstrated that there is no link between glyphosate and cancer.”

In 2017, the Ramazinni Institute was criticised by members of the US Congress, which has provided it with funding. US congress members have also probed funding for the IARC.

The new crowdfunded pilot study which the Ramazzini Institute compiled with Bologna University and the Italian National Health Institute observed the health effects of glyphosate on Sprague Dawley rats, which had been dosed with the US EPA-determined safe limit of 1.75 micrograms per kilo of body weight.

Two-thirds of known carcinogens had been discovered using the Sprague Dawley rat species, Mandrioli said, although further investigation would be needed to establish long-term risks to human health.

The pilot research did not focus on cancer but it did find evidence of glyphosate bioaccumulation in rats– and changes to reproductive health.

“We saw an increase in ano-genital distance in the formulation that is of specific importance for reproductive health,” Mandrioli said. “It might indicate a disruption of the normal level of sexual hormones.”

The study’s three peer-reviewed papers will be published in Environmental Health later in May, ahead of a €5m follow-up study that will compare the safe level against multiple other doses.

Newborn Human Baby Blood Shown to Reverse Age Related Diseases?

A recent scientific study published in the scientific Journal Nature has born out the possibility that components of the blood of newborn human babies could actually reverse many of the problems associated with cognitive and other impairments due to aging. While this may strike many as a horrific topic with it’s possible implications. Be aware this research is all linked to the scientific journals. A topic not for the faint of heart.

Human Umbilical Cord Plasma Proteins Revitalize Hippocampal Function in Aged Mice

This is a type of Parabiosis literally meaning “living beside“. By connecting the circulatory systems of two animals into one as in direct transfusion or periodic injections of donor blood. While the technology of transfusion, a form of Parabiosis, has been employed for centuries to save lives from catastrophic blood loss due to injury or surgery. Many would be horrified to know this practice is also being used by the rich and powerful for life extension to this day. Literally injecting the blood of the young for it’s rejuvenating properties. The topic was covered in depth in Raptorman’s last post about this grisly subject. It was reported widely by independent media.

Are the Aging Elite “Feasting On Young Blood”? Rockefeller Research Advanced Eternal Quest           SHTFPlan.com

There are many accounts of the elite throughout history using the blood of young children for sacrificial and life extending purposes. These accounts are often dismissed as lore from long ago and something of a legend like Dracula. The fact is this practice is still in fashion for life extension and is being publically admitted. Recent scientific studies have shown the health benefits of injecting a young animal’s blood into an older animal ranging from increased vitality, better skin, decreased aging, shiner hair and increased mental powers as well as physical stamina. A conceivably nightmarish scenario where the blood of the young becomes a commodity for the rich and powerful. Who’s lust for the good stuff does not stop at Italian marble and fine wines. Exploring this possibility is not to accuse any individual or corporation of violating the law. Asking a core question in the last post regarding the logical deduction about this ghoulish concept.

How young is the blood needed for maximum effects?

Asking this important question. What is the age of the blood needed for the maximum effects? Citing the scientific literature from the Journal NatureAny of the recent articles on the Parabiosis and the elite’s fascination with it all reference the same report in the journal Nature. Missing the most telling part of the report entitled Ageing research: Blood to blood.

This was only a couple paragraphs down from the material covered in the mainstream pieces. Mainstream media outlets must have lost interest after only a couple paragraphs.

Clive McCay, a biochemist and gerontologist at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, was the first to apply parabiosis to the study of ageing. In 1956, his team joined 69 pairs of rats, almost all of differing ages3. The linked rats included a 1.5-month-old paired with a 16-month-old — the equivalent of pairing a 5-year-old human with a 47-year-old. It was not a pretty experiment. Journal Nature   Ageing research: Blood to blood.

Scientific Research on this subject was originally done by Clive Mcay of Cornell University in 1956 and was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and the secretive Office of Naval Research. The Rockefeller Foundation stating it’s intentions as far back as 1943 to mine blood for it’s prophylactic use therapeutic components. “Thus, what started as an inquiry into the practicability of using animal plasma as a blood substitute for transfusion purposes, has developed into a program of “mining” blood for its individual substances and for testing these concentrates for therapeutic and prophylactic use.

The pursuit of using blood for it’s preventative and therapeutic health qualities is nothing new. Tales of vampires and a bloodthirsty elite rooted in the urban legend are gaining a scientific footing.

These experiments demonstrate the age range to obtain effects is a sliding scale meaning the older you are the younger blood needed for maximum effect. Pairing the equivalent of an 18-year-old with a 47-year-old produced only negligible results. Whereas pairing that same 47-year-old with a 5-year-old produced much better results. Mining the components of the young blood to enhance the function of an older host. All of this is certainly not good for the young donor being sucked dry of its vitality.

New research has come to light also featured in the Journal Nature. Answering the question of how young the blood would need to be for certain maximum effects. As indicated in the original work done by Clive Mcay in 1956 the youngest blood has the most dramatic health effects when injected into older hosts. Now it is born out in the scientific literature just how young blood must be for maximum effect to be had.

Human Umbilical Cord Plasma Proteins Revitalize Hippocampal Function in Aged Mice

Regarding this experiment it was not injecting young mouse blood into older mice. Injections of actual newborn human blood plasma from donated umbilical cords were given to older mice. Dramatically increasing their brain function and overall physiology. The experiment focused on memory and cognitive ability improvements using a component called a TIMP2 protein, mined from human newborn baby blood. Only researching the effects of this one component called a TIMP2 protein but admitting all kinds of rejuvenate qualities were obtained by the injection of newborn human baby blood. The experiment was related to aging research and not Alzheimer’s disease as is often quoted in mainstream articles when broaching the need for such macabre experiments.

In addition to revitalizing other aged tissues, exposure to factors in young blood counter acts age related changes in these central nervous system parameters, Although the identities of specific cognition promoting factors or whether such activity exists in human plasma remains unknown. We hypothesized that plasma of an early developmental stage, namely umbilical cord plasma, provides a reservoir of such plasticity promoting proteins. Here we show that human cord plasma treatment revitalizes the hippocampus and improves cognitive function in aged mice. Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases 2 (TIMP2), a blood born factor enriched in human cord plasma, young mouse plasma, and young mouse hippocampi appears in the brain after systemic administration and increases synaptic plasticity and hippocampal dependent cognition in aged mice.                    Journal Nature  Human Umbilical Cord Plasma Proteins Revitalize Hippocampal Function in Aged Mice

This cannot be understated. Human newborn baby blood reverses cognitive and other age-related ailments. Even in older mice that aren’t even human. Imagine what it would do for a billionaire in their late 40s who is overworked. Or an executive looking for any edge over their competition. What about an elite obsessed with life extension? Consider all of the horrific logical deductions. This is not to imply any wrongdoing by any individual or corporation. Only to show the relevant scientific research and ask logical questions as to where this is all going or where it has gone. Do you think there are enough donated umbilical cords to satisfy demand for such a conceivably important product?

These experiments demonstrate that the sliding scale slides all the way to the bottom if measured on an ethical gauge. The very youngest human blood being mined for it’s youth promoting effects. Possibly turned into commodity by the rich and powerful and used as a fountain of youth?

A darker picture could not be painted in the worst science fiction novel. Thanks to NaturalNewsBlogs.com and SHTFPlan.com for covering the last post on this subject.

The banana republic of Surrey has shown local council funding is broken | Simon Jenkins

The algebra is simple. The NHS is having another terrible winter. It does not collapse, but “spills demand” on to the next line of defence, local government welfare. But while the NHS gets more money annually from the Treasury, local government gets less, some 30% less since 2011. It cannot cope with the new pressure.

The equation resolves itself into rationing, by quantity and quality: fewer care places, fewer home visits and fewer district nurses leads to more bed-blocking, fewer operations, longer trolley waits.

Tory Surrey is a responsible supplier of post-hospital care. Like all councils, it is allowed by the Treasury to increase its council tax by 5%, specifically to boost its care budget and thus ease pressure on the NHS – which the Treasury is responsible for funding. Surrey county council regarded this as nothing like enough. It therefore activated its statutory right to hold a referendum on a 15% increase.

Far from showing delight at a wealthy council accepting this burden, the Tory government was appalled. Tories do not increase taxes. The chancellor (and Surrey MP) Philip Hammond duly did what Jeremy Corbyn called a secret deal. If Surrey abandoned its referendum and the 15% hike, it could retain revenue from a different tax – the local business rate, which normally went to the Treasury. That is, the Treasury would in effect spend more on health and care in Surrey, but secretly and, so far, just for Surrey.

This is the stuff of a banana republic. If Britain wants to spend more on health and elderly care, it should raise it and spend it honestly. Instead, the Treasury is running around its fiscal A&E department, staunching the flow of political blood by slamming on plasters wherever a patient screams or twists an arm.

Leaked Surrey council tax texts allow Corbyn to ambush May at PMQs

Some might argue that an NHS free at the point of delivery has had its day. New disciplines and incentives, through fees or insurance or more prevention, must constrain marginal demand. But for the time being, it makes no sense to squeeze the NHS at the top – where politicians are exposed – and dump its problems on to local government and different funding streams at the bottom. It wastes money and distorts priorities. It is illiterate public finance.

If Surrey is harbinger of a new health and care service, and business taxes are to relieve an ever-burgeoning NHS, so be it. But few places are as rich as Surrey. Revenue will have to be redistributed from rich to poor areas. In other words, it is not just the NHS that needs rethinking, but the whole murky world of local government finance.

Considerable Wellness Advantages Shown from Salt Reduction

An excess consumption of salt has been linked with a massive amount of well being concerns  including an improved risk of hypertension, cardiovascular ailment, abdomen cancer and total mortality. Regardless of the evidence, salt consumption in the modern planet remains quite large.

Processed foods are one of the major sources. Along with being substantial in salt, these merchandise frequently include hazardous substances such as trans-fats and large fructose corn syrup. However we live in an age of convenience, and processed food items look to fit the bill. Whilst they might appeal to the taste buds and are typically low in value, consuming them evidently comes at a a lot bigger value – our overall health.

An intriguing examine was not too long ago carried out in the Netherlands to evaluate the possible wellness benefits of numerous salt reduction approaches [1].

Three methods were utilized: one) replacing large-salt meals with minimal-salt meals, two) reducing the salt content of processed meals, and three) adhering to the suggested maximum salt intake of six grams per day.

The health outcomes of the review had been determined by means of a two-phase method. Salt consumption was first modelled into blood stress amounts. The Persistent Disease Model was then employed to translate the blood pressures into occurrences of cardiovascular ailments, disability-adjusted daily life years (DALYs), and existence expectancies. The overall health outcomes of the distinct situations have been then compared with health outcomes established from the current salt consumption.

The final results from the research were as follows. If salt consumption meets the recommended greatest intake of 6 grams per day, the burden of illness may well be lowered by 56,400 DALYs, and lifestyle expectancy could enhance by .15 y for a 40-y-old person. The examine also concluded that “4.eight% of acute myocardial infarction circumstances, 1.seven% of congestive heart failure cases, and 5.eight% of stroke cases may possibly be prevented”.

Although decreasing salt consumption beneath  6 grams per day showed benefits, some professionals argue that even this upper limit is nevertheless also higher. The WHO now suggests no more than 2000 mg of sodium a day, equal to five grams of salt [2], and some experts are suggesting even reduce values.

The Dutch research concluded that substituting food items with reduced-salt alternatives would lead to a slightly higher reduction in salt consumption than when aiming to just meet the 6 gram a day target alone hence would lead to a lot more overall health gains. Attempting to decrease salt content in presently processed foods however was estimated to create somewhat lower benefits.

The message to consider away looks to be: it is helpful to your health to lessen your salt consumption under the six gram a day limit. The most favourable method if performing so is to increase your consumption of complete food items that are naturally lower in salt, and reduce your consumption of processed food items that are large in salt, along with several other unfavourable substances.
